I am LOVING my new rainbow banner! Thanks so much to Alex Hennig of Clear Design for making it so perfect for me and my blog. And thanks to Maia for all the lovely rainbows she creates, including the rainbow watercolor painting used for the blog banner.
This is one of Maia's most recent rainbows, made with a combination of stickers and crayons.
The geometric shape stickers are from Discount School Supply. My friend Rachel and I split an order since there are so many of them and they are rather expensive. I like having the geometric shapes though, for art, rather than little ponies and hello kitty and such (which we enjoy too). Usually I make do with stars and circles (yard sale sticker tags!) and rectangles (address labels) for art, but there's definitely something compelling about an assortment of colorful stickers.
Maia arranged hers by the colors of the rainbow and colored in the space between with crayon, all the while singing a simple rainbow song she learned from school. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet, too. The colors of the rainbow!
I'm not crazy about these skinny Crayola crayons that break so easily and quickly, but we watched a Mister Rogers' Neighborhood episode on how crayons are made (thanks for the encouragement, Teacher Tom!), and so of course I had to buy a box of Crayolas! We're enjoying all the colors.
